Owner Rental Information Forms, DC & MD
Owner Property Information Sheet
We ask all Owners to complete a Property Information Sheet to help us better serve your rental property and your tenants. To expedite many repairs, it is best to know your appliance specifications in further detail or where certain items are located. Please complete and submit the Form to your designated DC-Area Property Manager via email, or simply email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include your last name in the subject line. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your Property Manager or call our main lines:
DC Office (202) 656-2354
MD Office (443) 535-1246
Licensing By Jursidiction
We will discuss the requirements specific to your situation during your initial consultation appointment. This is just one of the many services included in the management fee. The answers to your many questions about your DC-Area rental property will vary depending on where your rental is located, but we will be there to explain every jurisdictional nuance, making sure you become the expert. The decision is yours whether you want RM Properties to navigate compliance, or if you would rather take the reigns throughout the registration process. Again, we’ll be there to offer support.

If your property was constructed between January 1, 1950 and December 31, 1978, the provisions of the Maryland Program will also apply to the leasing of your property if you, the Owner, have voluntarily elected to participate in the Maryland Program. In participation of the Maryland Program, an Owner must include in attachment to the Lease both copies of the Federal Forms found above, and one copy per Tenant of the Maryland Program’s Notice of Tenants’ Rights, found below.

District of Columbia Law: If your Washington, DC rental property was constructed prior to 1978, in addition to the Federal Act, the provisions of The District’s Lead-Hazard Prevention and Elimination Act (“the District Act”) will apply to the lease of your property. Under the District Act, the definition of “lead-based paint hazard” includes more conditions that meet the classification, thus making it more restrictive that the Federal Act’s definition of the term. In participation of the District Act, an Owner must include in attachment to the Lease both copies of the Federal Forms founds above, and one copy per Tenant of the Lead Disclosure Form, found below.
